The Cherry Creek High School Wind Ensemble has been invited to perform at the 2018 Music for All National Festival, presented by Yamaha, the nation’s most prestigious festival for scholastic musical ensembles. The 27th annual Festival will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana, March 15-17, 2018.

The CCHS Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Tim Libby, is one of only 71 high school and middle school concert bands, choirs, orchestras, chamber ensembles and percussion ensembles from across the nation selected to perform at the 2018 Festival. The group was selected by a panel of esteemed music educators and conductors via a recorded audition.

During the festival, those groups will perform in concert, be evaluated by renowned music educators and participate in master classes and special events.

Music for All is one of the nation’s largest and most influential organizations advocating in support of music education. The Music for All National Festival showcases the finest music ensembles and student musicians in America, shining a spotlight on outstanding music making and the importance of music education. Being invited is the achievement: with no ratings or rankings awarded, the non-competitive festival provides a supportive environment for cooperative encouragement for all of the ensembles.  Evaluators give feedback on the performances, and groups receive a post-concert clinic for future growth, providing an educational experience for both teachers and students.

The Music for All National Festival takes place in Indianapolis’ finest concert venues, and is comprised of several events:  National Concert Band Festival, Orchestra America National Festival, National Choir Festival, Sandy Feldstein National Percussion Festival, Middle School National Music Festival, Chamber Music National Festival and three national honor ensembles: The Honor Band of America, the Honor Orchestra of America, and the Jazz Band of America. With the premiere of the National Choir Festival at the 2018 event, the Festival now includes all types of large ensembles that traditionally are part of a school music program – band, orchestra and choir.

Festival and ticket information will be available at www.musicforall.org/festival or by calling 800-848-2263.
